Top Customer Reviews

By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 April 2007
Format: Audio CD
This recording is an essential addition to any serious Jazz collection, capturing as it does five Jazz giants recorded together for the one and only time.

Charlie Parker is on Alto Sax, Dizzy Gillespie Trumpet, Bud Powell Piano, Charles Mingus bass and Max Roach on drums. From the first number "Perdido" you know this something special. A medium tempo version which never stops swinging. Gillespie in particular is in fiery form on this number. On "Salt Peanuts" Bud Powell plays a memorable solo, which precedes a thunderous drum solo from Max Roach.

The atmosphere is fantastic with the crowd applauding the musicians solos, and sometimes you can hear the musicians cajoaling each other to better performances.

Considering the recordings are over fifty years old the sound is pretty good. The only reason this doesn't get five stars is because there is a newer 'complete' version of this recording.

The main players in be bop, at the height of their powers, doing an incandescently brilliant show, made more alluring by the basic recording equiptment bizzarly. Four stars? Get outta here!!

Recording quality is boxy and muddy at times but what performances from the masters dominated by the bird. One for the collection to be played when you need a warm comfort of superb jazz.
